## sylinan 2 years ago 2 over 3 next to x + 1 = 27

1. hba

$\frac{ 2 }{ 3}(x+1)=27$ Right ?

@hba yes(:

1) multiply both sides by 3

@sylinan Start working :)

so we have 2/3(x+1)=27 . We multiply the opposite of 2/3 to both sides, which is 3/2, so the fraction can cancel out and that means we have- $3/2∗2/3(x+1)=27∗3/2$ $x+1=27∗3/2$ Now we multiply 27/1*3/2 and that gives us 81/2 and 81/2=40.5 $x+1=40.5$ Now we finally then subtract both sides by 1 which gives us $x=39.5$
